close friends of the Bryant family have been appalled by
the media's behavior, and equally appalled that anyone would
stoop so low as to "engineer" this gentle
and intellectually impaired young man into a notorious killer.
Most point out that media fiction about his life is no more
than that - just fiction, albeit of the vicious and falsely-incriminating
are reading this and live in Australia, rest assured that
the picture above could be that of your own son or father
or brother. Australian politicians and the Judiciary long
ago decided to throw justice to one side, in favour on a
new and frightening Orwellian reality, where political incompetence
and national security considerations are brushed under the
carpet, and young men like Martin are sacrificed for a "greater
are reminded once again that there is not a shred of evidence
linking Martin Bryant to Port Arthur, or to the multiple
murders committed there on 28 April 1996: No fingerprints,
no DNA, no weapons or ballistics matches. Not a single one
of the much-lauded "eyewitness" statements
is, or will ever be, valid in a court of law.
also that Bryant did not confess, but was brutalized in
strictly-illegal solitary confinement until he was "ready"
to say guilty during early November 1996. That we should
allow this to happen at all to an intellectually impaired
young man (IQ 66) in our society, says much about
our morals, and even more about our decline as a civilized
for Bryant's plight today rests solely with the media. Without
its not-so-careless creativity, this man would have received
a fair hearing and a proper trial, which would certainly
have been of benefit to us all in terms of Australian national
security. We must continue to fight for this man's human
rights, despite recent media attempts to once again cover
its own heavily-soiled tracks in this case.
would like to copy Martin's photo for your files, or to
print out as hard copy to stick on the fridge door as a
reminder of gross media deception, proceed as follows: Right-click
on the picture with your mouse and "save as"
or "save picture as" in your computer's
"My Documents" folder. Select printer and
print the file.
